After reading the reviews and seeing all of the people waiting outside to eat at this restaurant, I had very high expectations. When we did go, I found the menu was basic along with the food. Nothing special. The portions were very large and the price fairly low. I must say that the service was excellent and the wait staff... More

We had lunch here after a long day of travel from the east coast. We stopped in because the restaurant was near our vacation rental and on the way to Saguaro National Park. We were seated right away. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. I had a BLT and my daughter had a grilled ham & cheese, both... More

My opinion. The best breakfast in Tucson. Place gets packed. Lots of locals and college kids come her. Service is crazy fast even one busy. The portions are big. I had the old English omelet. Come in empty and leave full and happy. All the staff here is wonderful. Yes I'm a local but I travel all of us and... More

Food was plentiful and so delicious. The staff were fast and very friendly. It's a small place and you might see a few people waiting out front but this is because everyone knows that THIS is the place for breakfast. Our wait was short and staff greeted us with a smile when our name was called. They are working fast... More

Had Bobo's special omelet which included ham, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese and special spices. It was large but really delicious. It cam with toast and potatoes. I would recommend it. Grandson had a pancake and sausage and bacon. He stated "the pancake is the size of a pizza". That was true and the omelet was huge also. Service was excellent.... More

Friends took me here, they live 2 blocks away. I have to say that this was one of the best breakfast places I have ever been to. Everything is hand made and down home. I understand it can get crowded, but it is surely worth a wait. Luckily we went early and got a table immediately. The portions are large.... More

This is one place you get more than your money's worth. Great staff keep the place clean and organized. There is often a line to get in but it is worth the wait. I haven't been disappointed with anything I have eaten here. I am partial to the biscuits and gravy with two eggs. Anyone I brought here has enjoyed... More

I rated five stars because it delivers exactly what you'd expect: A solid breakfast sort of like Mel's Diner on the 70s TV show, Alice. The Banana Pecan pancake (singular, because this monstrous pancake is huge and thick and not like an ordinary pancake served at the chain restaurants), is nothing short of spectacular. The rest of the food is... More

It's good, but know what you're getting into. Location a bit seedy. What ever you do...if you can afford the carbs go for the pecan pancake! Yum. Even without syrup.
